Wisconsin Republicans received dirty DeLay $$
Rep. Jeb Bradley (R-NH) has returned his share of the PAC money he received from Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX). Will Wisconsin's congressional Republicans take the high ground and return their share as well?
According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, Rep. Mark Green received $29,414 and Rep. Paul Ryan received $25,390. The other two members of the delegation received far less with Rep. Tom Petri getting $1,295 and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner getting a measly $20 (what's the point?).
Eye on Wisconsin points out that both Green and Ryan also contributed $1000 to DeLay's legal defense fund, obviously knowing that the majority leader would someday need it. Green, who is running for governor, should send back that PAC money ASAP if he wants to stop this from becoming an issue in his campaign. As for Ryan, his consitituents should be disappointed that while he tries to maintain a reputation of independence, he is really quite beholden to the House Republican leadership.
